Poland Coat of Arms:
Flag of Poland

Poland's coat of arms consists of a white eagle resting against a red shield.

Legend has it that the founder of Poland, Lech, saw a white eagle's nest, and as he looked upon the bird, a ray of sunshine fell on its wings making it appear as if they were tipped in gold. Delighted, he decided to settle, and made the eagle his emblem.
